lamb stew curry

Nothing couldn’t be easier to make something so pleasing to your family or guests than this dish, as it has everything they always are fond of –  the delicious taste, mouthwatering aroma and the juicy appearance .

Kids love the silky and succulent lamb pieces that melt into their mouths and the gravy, which is not so spicy, but full of flavours.  The secret of bursting flavours in this dish is that it is boiled with all the spices first and then added to the fry-up with pieces and juices altogether.

 What you need to make this delicious dish:

Spring lamb in medium size pieces 300 g
Onion 1 large or 2 medium
Coriander powder 2 tsp
Cumin powder 2 tsp
Salt to taste 1 tsp
Turmeric 2 tsp
Tomato 1 large
Green chilies 2
Chili powder 2 tsp
Ginger garlic paste  2 tbsp
Olive oil or any kind of oil 2 tbsp
Garam masala for sprinkling on top  1 tsp

Let’s get started:

Pressure cook it

  • Add half of all above listed ingredients to the pressure cooker with meat and pressure cook until meat gets tender.  4 – 6 whistles depending on your pressure cooker
  • Keep the pressure cooked  lamb aside which will look like this,

  • Fry until all comes together and oil separates.

Add lamb pieces first then gravy

  • Drain the gravy and add only the pressure cooked lamb pieces into the wok and fry a little while
  • Now pour the gravy into the wok.  If the gravy is not enough add a little hot water
  • Mix thoroughly, cover and simmer under  low flame
  • After 5 mins, open the lid, give a good stir and raise the flame high for 2 mins to thicken the gravy and oil to float up.
  • Sprinkle garam masala on top
  • Garnish with chopped coriander leaves.
  • Cover and let the stew to rest.  This allows the meats to absorb all the aromatic flavours of spices
  • Time to serve for all hungry mouths!!!
